Many events can lead to a brain injury. Falls are the most common cause of traumatic brain injuries (TBI), often occurring on properties with hazardous or dangerous conditions. Among TBI hospitalizations, four out of five cases were adults over 65, some resulting from nursing home negligence.
The second leading cause of hospitalizations for TBI and head injuries was motor vehicle accidents. The third leading cause involved being struck in the head by an object, often due to workplace accidents or defective products.
More than a quarter of head injury hospitalizations resulting from objects striking heads were for children under 17, with sports and recreation accidents being the primary contributors. Lastly, assaults accounted for the fourth leading cause of TBI.
